Vitamin D deficiency is a major issue in the U.S. Estimates show that nine in ten American adults in America may be deficient – an alarming statistic. Over time with the help of research and advanced technology, a highly absorbable liposomal vitamin D is now available. Find out how it can help you and how D3K2 vitamins work together.
It’s important to know that as an essential nutrient, vitamin D is not made in the body on its own — so we must get it from exterior sources. While you can certainly get vitamin D from the sun, your skin may protest, as extreme rays are not necessarily tolerable. This is especially true in light of the many hours you would need to maintain sun exposure for your body to kick into action converting these beams into D. Additionally, you may also receive the nutrient from your food, but likely not enough. Lastly, there have been supplements around for many years, but it’s still likely not enough.
That’s where supplementation comes in. However, not all are created equal or have the bioavailable potential for your body to absorb maximum benefits.
Indeed, vitamin D is fat-soluble. Perhaps you wisely choose the D3 variety – check. Perhaps you take it with your morning smoothie… which might not have any fat in it! Not check! Vitamin D3 needs fat for absorption. Choose D in fat-based lipo form.
Doctor-prescribed vitamin D is often the inferior vitamin D2 form, or ergocalciferol. Other traditional vitamin D can be challenging to absorb as well, especially for certain groups of people.
Instead, reach for Vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol, which is the reliable option for supplementation. Vitamin D3 is responsible for maintaining normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus, subsequently promoting healthy bones and teeth. Additionally, it is a big contributor to supporting your immune health.
Make Your D3 Liposomal
With many standard vitamin D supplements– even the higher, prescription-only doses–the body’s digestive system must work hard to break down and ultimately absorb them. This is because vitamin D is fat-soluble and requires fat, such as liposomes, for proper absorption. When in a liposomal form though, that is unnecessary.
Dr. Mercola’s exclusive Liposomal Vitamin D3 contains fatty phospholipids from sunflower lecithin to deliver smaller, easier-to-absorb particles. There is evidence to suggest that, when mixed with water, like what happens in your gastrointestinal tract, these phospholipids create liposomes that can help the nutrient gain entry across your gut membrane to its target organs and cells. Optimal absorption equals optimal benefit.
Liposomal D3 cholecalciferol supplements are packed in protective Licaps capsules instead of oxygen-permeable soft gels. Adults and children 4 and older benefit from 1000 IU per day. Notably, as most adults are deficient, 5000 IU capsules are recommended. Also available are the 10,000 IU dose capsules.
D and K Togetherness
It should come as no surprise that your cardiovascular health says a lot about you and your overall wellness. The more flexible your arteries can remain, the better they can get oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the entire body. However, if the balance of vitamins K, D, and calcium are out of whack, your arteries may pay the price. Woe to those who in good faith take their vitamins in hope of maintaining strong bones and teeth while actually poorly affecting their arteries and blood vessels! Thus, calcification occurs and making these once flexible pathways rigid and perhaps even impassable. Not only does this potentially create circulation issues, but it also means your bones are not getting the support they really need. The answer? Take a balanced D3K2 formula to positively affect your calcium intake and support healthy blood flow.
Vitamin K acts as the traffic patrol for the calcium highway, directing it to where it can most efficiently be used. Taking vitamin D3 with K2 will ensure everything gets right where it needs to be. This supplement provides 5000 iu of cholecalciferol D3 with 180 mcg K2 (MenaQ7® or MK-7) in gluten-free, soy-free, GMO-free vegetarian capsules. Take just one D3K2 per day.
